A Bit of a Bargain

It was one of those moments. I could hardly believe it when I saw this classic 1960’s Poole Pottery casserole dish on a table in the shop at my local tip. I had been looking at an illustration of it on the flyer for the book about Robert Jefferson, on my kitchen notice board for a while.

Jefferson worked as a designer at Poole from the late 50’s to the mid 60’s and is responsible for many innovative designs. This casserole was one of the early examples of oven to table ware.

Sadly, its condition is not perfect as there is a light chip on the rim. But for 50p I’m not complaining.
